The conference will bring together EU and national-level decision-makers, representatives of social partners, civil society and the academic community across the EU. It will be an opportunity to examine key questions facing Member States and the EU as a whole, including: How can we put solidarity within the EU into practice and how can we boost social justice? What needs to be done to prevent in-work poverty? How can we enable vulnerable people to participate in society? How can we foster inclusive growth in Europe that benefits everybody?
As part of the conference, Eurofound’s Deputy Director Maria Jepsen will share insight, based on Eurofound’s recent findings, into the challenges for Europe’s youth in the wake of the pandemic. Massimiliano Mascherini, Head of Social Policies at Eurofound, will provide a contribution to the conference on 'Upward convergence in the EU: Definition, measurement and trends'.
